Our philosophy and vision

  • Develop the person first, the athlete second and then the tennis player using our A.R.C. system – Attitude, Respect & Commitment.
  • Build a healthy, competitive environment focusing on two simple but essential ingredients: hard work and passion.
  • Encourage a growth mindset both on and off the court.
  • Help people reach their potential in their own time frame.

faq

All Invitational A, B and B+ Players have satisfied the Red –> Orange –> Green –> Yellow ball transition phases and have sound technical fundamentals – balance, contact and use of non-dominant arm.

They are aware of our 5 key character strengths and strive to improve these areas both on and off the court. They have to be invited into our programmes by Jason Sankey.

B players have satisfied R –> G –> Y Transition and are 12 and under and competing in local and club tournaments regularly.

B players train a minimum of 2 times/week and up to 3 or 4.

B+ players are 12 and over and are transitioning to A level – not quite at international tournament level.

A players are 12 and over, competing in all local and some international tournaments and UTR events.
